KOAA Survey: Mental health treatment in Colorado

May 11, 2021

Originally published in KOOA News Colorado

The past year has been incredibly difficult for Coloradans to cope with. Along with an unprecedented pandemic that led to lockdowns, cuts in services, death, illness, job loss and more, the state has also experienced massive wildfires, calls for social justice reforms, a contentious 2020 election, an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol and two mass shootings.

Any one of these events is enough to cause someone to need counseling from a mental health professional. Collectively, these events have led to an increase in the number of people in the state screening positive for stress and anxiety, according to Mental Health Colorado.
